EA DICE has revealed that the story of Mirror's Edge will be told over three games.

"The story we're telling at the moment is kind of a trilogy, a three-story arc," Owen O'Brien, senior producer, told AusGamers.

"I think there's a lot of scope to take the story in different directions, or maybe tell someone else's story. But certainly for these first couple of games, it's all about Faith. It's all about her experience in the world."

So far, plans for the first - and previously unheard of - sequel also include a level editor, although O'Brien admits this might be fairly trick to do.

"Creating a level editor is a skill in itself, and that's a lot of work. And if we do it, we want to make the level editor as easy to use and intuitive as the game is. And that's going to take us quite a lot of time. So that's something we're looking at for the sequel," he said.

Mirror's Edge is due out for Xbox 360 and PS3 on 14th November, with a date for the PC version still to be announced.

The brightly-coloured first-person action game has certainly caused heads to turn. Head over to our hands-on impressions of Mirror's Edge to find out more.
